CA-Sen: Ex- California POL Chuck DeVore Cannot Let Go

You would think this Texas living, ex-California Assemblyman would let this year’s California U.S. Senate race just happen, right?

Wrong.

Chcuk DeVore went to my friend, Jon Fleischman’s site and penned this endorsement of Dan Hughes who is running in the California June Primary election for United States Senate. The incumbent is long time Democrat U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein.

Dan’s leading opponent, Elizabeth Emken, ran for Congress in 2010 and placed fourth in a four person GOP primary despite putting in significant personal money. Emken’s biggest political contribution before that, other than to her own campaign, was the $1,000 she and her husband gave to liberal Republican-turned-Democrat Senator Arlen Specter in the year he ran against conservative champion Pat Toomey, now a U.S. Senator. Her main efforts in public policy have been to lobby to have more state government health insurance mandates – a policy that drives up the cost of insurance for all of us. In fact, she was even paid $151,486 to professionally lobby Democrat Members of Congress to expand what ObamaCare covers and what we taxpayers are on the hook for.

Dan Hughes has been in the race only a brief time while Elizabeth Emken has been running since last year. Yet Emken has only generated around $39,000 while Hughes is the top fundraiser among Senate GOP candidates. Dan is a committed and very hard working candidate who is spending his time and money to stand up for conservative principles and take the fight to Dianne Feinstein.

One of Hughes’ opponents on the Republican side is Elizabeth Emken, whose Senior Communications Adviser, Mark Standriff, wrote this piece in response.

For the record:

You remember, Chuck DeVore, the former Orange County based Assemblyman who wasted $ hundreds of thousands of Republican donors money in running a futile U.S. Senate primary race against former Rep. Tom Campbell and Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina.

Here are the results of DeVore’s last election – the one in which he received less than 20% of the vote:

Mark Standriff in his piece talks about SOUR GRAPES from DeVore.

Chuck, isn’t it time to just let it go?

CA-Sen: Elizabeth Emken Announces Run for United States Senate

Elizabeth Emken and family

Elizabeth Emken announced her candidacy for the Republican nomination for California United States Senate yesterday, Is she is succesfull in winning a top two spot, she undoubtedly will face off against long-time incumbent Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein.

I believe Emken is the only announced Republican candidate.

She has previously run for office in California’s 11th Congressional District in 2010. She finished fourth in the Republican primary election with 16.7% of the vote.

Emken will face a tough race against the popular and very well heeled incumbent Senator who chairs the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Here is a video of her past race:

Her Senate campaign website is here.

Unless lightening strikes, I would say Emken’s chances of beating Feinstein are very slim.
